Holiday Band Concert

I have to admit that this was a first for the Messina family. The boys have never had the opportunity to be in the school band before now. Here it is required. We enjoyed the various music of the groups that played...the 6th grade band, 7th grade band, 8th grade band and the symphonic band (the high school band). The music was of the international variety with many pieces coming from different parts of Europe, Ukraine or Africa. Lily had her thick beginner pencil with her and directed the last half of the concert from her spot in the audience.
Tim plays alto saxophone and plays very well. Joe plays the trombone but his heart is in the percussion section. He has the option of opting out of band for 8th grade and he may do that if he isn't allowed to play percussion. We shall see!
